One Dead After NSA Gate Attack
I'm interested in the FBI rationale. Two men dressed as women crashing a NSA checkpoint at Fort Meade in a stolen SUV isn't your typical "took a wrong turn" fare.MARCH 31, 2015
One man has been killed while another has been seriously injured in a shooting at the gate of the headquarters of the National Security Agency, near Washington. The NSA officers fired on a vehicle after it refused to obey their commands to stop and charged past a police vehicle that was blocking the road. An unnamed official said that the car held two men who were dressed as woman and one of them died at the scene while the other was taken to a hospital.
The attack took place just after 9am local time at the NSA section of the Fort Meade facility. In a rare public statement, the NSA said that the driver refused to obey the command to stop and leave the secure area, from the NSA police officer. The vehicle then continued to charge towards an NSA vehicle, hitting it and it was then that the police fired on it, according to the statement. There is no mention as to whether the men had any weapons.
FBI Baltimore spokeswoman Amy Thoreson said that they did not believe at this point that the incident was connected to terrorism.
